I love him so much that, I hope Rey is a Kenobi so that we can highjack the "Saga" from the Skywalkers and make it a Kenobi Saga instead. :heartbeat:

Guys, A New Hope is so much better than I remembered. No, really. It's a great fucking movie. Though, I really do hate Greedo shooting before Han. That's so fucking lame. Almost makes it seem like Cassain Andor shooting his informant in the back is a direct response.

3PO: I'd forgotten how much I hate space travel

Um... how the fuck long were they on Tatooine? 3PO, you JUST experienced space travel like 2 days ago! What do you mean you "forgot."

Idiot droid.

Wait til you get to the imperial conference scene with Vader choking the guy

Makes all the more sense and brings an immediacy.




Though as someone else said earlier. They fought to escape with those plans.

And han and Obi Wan bring the plans right back to them. Right into their lap.

Wait... so Vader isn't able to use the Force nor to torture the information he needs from Leia? ... Fascinating. Is that an early reference to how strong she is in The Force? Is it mirrored in The Force Awakens with Rey? That's really interesting to think about.

I never realized how strong Leia is in ANH.

Thinking at this point he just wants self preservation. Aka I know nothing.

No. he tortures her and anyone via the machine/orb.

He doesn't approve of it so doesn't himself.


Don't know if that's canon. Read it somewhere.

Yeah, I don't know man. Based on exactly what's shown in the movie, there's no reason to think he doesn't use that orb droid to torture her. And she still doesn't give up the info. That's kind of amazing.

I noticed today when watching R1 how many times an x-wing flies through an explosion. And now watching ANH, it's crazy how many times a ship flies through an exploded opponent. Awesome. Makes R1 even better.

I still don't get how Vader doesn't sense that Luke is his son during that final battle.

Don't tell Skitch but... as much as I love Chopper, it's really all about R2.

Her mother (adopted) was the queen of Alderaan.

Bail Organa is the prince consort (husband) to the queen of alderaan. So like queen elizabeths husband isn't king he's the duke of Edinburgh. He married into the royal line. He's not made king but consort. (Plus she's royalty the other way though padme but that's neither here nor there in canon)Make sense?
